Donate now: https://give.massgeneral.org/SSLPage.aspx?pid=957 Our dear friend Judy Shanley has been living with stage-4 lung cancer for over two years under the remarkable care of Dr. Jeffrey A. Engelman and the Massachusetts General Hospital Team in Boston. Judy is receiving what is known as Targeted Cancer Therapy. Many oncologists believe that targeted therapies are the chemotherapy of the future. Dr. Engelman has Judy in a clinical trial for the drug Crizotinib. Although the drug has extended Judy's life, eventually the cancer will develop a resistance to it. Dr. Engelman and his team are currently at work trying to identify new therapies that will help Judy and other lung cancer patients.

VOH: Children Of Eden highlights  2017
 
06:59
Voices Of Hope is a nonprofit organization of more than 200 individuals from Greater Boston who sing and perform to raise awareness and funds for cancer research through theatrical performances. Established in 2009 as a way to honor loved ones impacted by cancer, VOH has achieved a great level of success in raising funds through theatrical and musical performances large and small, in venues such as Symphony Hall, North Shore Music Theatre, TD Garden, Gillette Stadium, the Hatch Shell, and Fenway Park. This group of dedicated members voluntarily work year-round to attract donors who support their journey. They have successfully secured private and corporate sponsors, including Fuddruckers, Conquer Cancer Coalition, Walmart and WGBH to help offset the significant costs associated with theatrical production. It is through these efforts that VOH has connected with thousands of people who are moved by the power and passion of their song and have joined their ever-growing community of hope for a cure. To date VOH has raised over a half a million dollars for cancer research The local non-profit, which is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research through musical performance, will donate proceeds from the show to support cutting edge work being conducted at the Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at the Mass General Cancer Center. The Termeer Center has been the proud recipient of annual support from VOH since their 2012 season. Amazingly, VOH has become the second-highest donor (after the Termeer’s themselves) to support the many costs associated with the Termeer Center’s early phase clinical trials of promising new therapies and related studies. “The efforts we have undertaken in the past several years –accelerated by Voices Of Hope’s support–have allowed us to understand why it is that one patient responds to a therapy so much better than another,” says Keith Flaherty, MD, Director of the Termeer Center at MGH. “Specifically,we use these funds to augment our robust tumor biopsy program, where we procure, deploy, and analyze patient’s specific genetic testing to help us link the best possible treatment for their unique mutation(s).” From the performers, to the choreographers, musicians, back-stage tech, and directors, this production represents more than 100 dedicated members of VOH. Personally impacted by cancer or dedicated to finding a cure, these volunteers collectively donate thousands of hours to rehearsal and planning in the months leading to this single night.

Prostate Health Month: Advice on PSA Screenings & Cancer Treatments
 
04:03
September is Prostate Health Month. Over 200,000 men in the United States are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. The American Cancer Society estimates that nearly 30,000 deaths occurring from prostate cancer in the U.S. will happen in 2012, making it the second leading cause of cancer death in men. Aria Olumi, MD, staff urologist and director of Urology Research at Mass General, shares his insight on what the general public needs to know about prostate cancer and PSA screenings. Olumi says while guidelines that hospitals have used to diagnose patients over the last two decades have led to an increase in men being diagnosed, there has also been an over diagnosis of prostate cancer and over treatment. His advice to patients is to discuss their screening and treatment options with their primary care physicians, cancer specialists or urologists.

Broadway & Beyond: ABBA medley - Voices Of Hope
 
06:13
Voices Of Hope is a nonprofit organization of more than 200 individuals from Greater Boston who sing and perform to raise awareness and funds for cancer research through theatrical performances. Established in 2009 as a way to honor loved ones impacted by cancer, VOH has achieved a great level of success in raising funds through theatrical and musical performances large and small, in venues such as Symphony Hall, North Shore Music Theatre, TD Garden, Gillette Stadium, the Hatch Shell, and Fenway Park. This group of dedicated members voluntarily work year-round to attract donors who support their journey. They have successfully secured private and corporate sponsors, including Fuddruckers, Conquer Cancer Coalition, Walmart and WGBH to help offset the significant costs associated with theatrical production. It is through these efforts that VOH has connected with thousands of people who are moved by the power and passion of their song and have joined their ever-growing community of hope for a cure. To date VOH has raised over a half a million dollars for cancer research The local non-profit, which is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research through musical performance, will donate proceeds from the show to support cutting edge work being conducted at the Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at the Mass General Cancer Center. The Termeer Center has been the proud recipient of annual support from VOH since their 2012 season. Amazingly, VOH has become the second-highest donor (after the Termeer’s themselves) to support the many costs associated with the Termeer Center’s early phase clinical trials of promising new therapies and related studies. “The efforts we have undertaken in the past several years –accelerated by Voices Of Hope’s support–have allowed us to understand why it is that one patient responds to a therapy so much better than another,” says Keith Flaherty, MD, Director of the Termeer Center at MGH. “Specifically,we use these funds to augment our robust tumor biopsy program, where we procure, deploy, and analyze patient’s specific genetic testing to help us link the best possible treatment for their unique mutation(s).” From the performers, to the choreographers, musicians, back-stage tech, and directors, this production represents more than 100 dedicated members of VOH. Personally impacted by cancer or dedicated to finding a cure, these volunteers collectively donate thousands of hours to rehearsal and planning in the months leading to this single night.

People get it decades after they’ve been exposed to asbestos. Asbestos used to be everywhere, especially if you worked in construction or shipbuilding, or as a mechanic who worked on brakes. There’s also asbestos throughout many buildings – including tiles in the floor and ceiling, and insulation around pipes and water heaters. It can surround you in a school office building or home. You may get mesothelioma when you breathe in the asbestos fibers. They settle near your lungs and in other parts of your body. This has a bad effect on your cells, and eventually makes them cancerous. Many people aren’t even aware that they’ve been exposed to any cancerous materials. It often doesn’t appear until 40 or 50 years after the exposure – when they worked a construction job during the summer or did the laundry for a spouse. Mesothelioma is a horrific disease that affects thousands of people each year – let’s join together to raise awareness and money to get rid of this disease for good.

This is how children who have beaten cancer mark the end of their treatment
 
01:02
These are the heart-warming moments brave children who have beaten cancer mark the end of their life-saving treatment – by ringing a bell as they leave hospital for the final time. As their long-suffering families, and medical staff who nursed the stricken kids back to health, form a ‘guard of honour’ and applaud, the youngsters carry out the symbolic gesture to celebrate the end of their gruelling therapy. The bells feature in hospitals across the country, including Bristol Children’s Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital, where thousands of children, such as Sam Sharland and Oscar Beardmore are treated for the disease. Every day, 12 families will be told their child has cancer, with 10 children and young people tragically losing their fight each week. But with the aid of research funded by Children with Cancer UK (https://www.childrenwithcancer.org.uk/), which is marking its 30th anniversary this year, it is hoped more children and their families will be able to celebrate the ‘all clear’ with the symbolic bell. The charity is marking the milestone anniversary with the launch of a new website, logo and video highlighting its work. Estimated survival rates for childhood cancer in 2017 are thought to be around 84 per cent, up from 64 per cent in 1990. And while there are an estimated 35,000 survivors of childhood cancer alive in the UK, this number is growing by around 1,300 a year. But survivors can also end up with long-term emotional and physical problems, sometimes as a result of the aggressive treatment needed to save their lives. Patients also typically face a five-year wait after finishing their treatment before they can be considered cured. Sam, aged 10 from Woking, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in 2013, at the age of just five, after suffering pains in his neck and hip. After three years and four months of treatment at The Royal Marsden, Sutton, he finally had his chance to ring the ‘end of treatment bell’ after his final course of chemotherapy in April 2017. Mum Tamsin, said: “Sam is thriving now he is ‘off treatment’. It took a couple of months for his strength to return and he had a difficult time with a few side effects. “A long summer holiday break and a trip to France to see our friends really helped. “Cancer has taught our family to make the most of life.” Oscar, from Wednesbury, West Midlands, was born in 2014 and grew into a healthy and happy toddler, but his mum Cheryl was given the heart-breaking news in June 2017, when he was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma. Within days of his diagnosis, the youngster was admitted to hospital to start the first of 13 sessions of strength-zapping chemotherapy. Months later, doctors decided to operate to remove the mass, but despite this, Oscar still needed proton therapy treatment in Germany to reduce the risk of a relapse. Cheryl said: “We lived in Germany for seven weeks while Oscar received 28 sessions of proton therapy while under general anaesthetic, five days a week. “This was Oscar’s final course of treatment, and on our return to the UK he finally got to ring the end of treatment bell. “As a family we have been to hell and back, but Oscar in true ‘superhero style’ has shown tremendous courage throughout and has never complained. “It’s Oscar who has been our ‘rock’ and got us through the darkest of days when it should have been the other way around.” In the UK, cancer is the most common cause of death for children aged one-14, while for teenagers it is second only to road accidents. Brain tumours kill more children and young people than any other cancer, with one type, Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), currently having no cure. Children with Cancer UK spokesman Mark Hooley, said: “At Children with Cancer UK our vision is a world where no child dies of cancer. “When developing our new logo we wanted to show the progress made in childhood cancer treatment over the past thirty years since the charity was established, but also how much more work there is to do. “We hope our new TV advert and logo will help show how vital scientific research is to make safer and kinder cures for childhood cancers. “Childhood cancers are different to the cancers in adults, so it’s crucial that we continue to invest in innovative new treatments like precision medicine that could improve survival rates in even the hardest-to-treat cancers, reduce the burden of toxicity for young cancer patients and help keep families together. “The end of treatment bell is a symbol of the world we are helping to create. “The only way we can increase survival rates and find out why children get cancer is by investing in cutting-edge research. “We won’t stop our work until every child cancer sufferer gets to ring the end of treatment bell. “We’d also like to thank the wonderful people at End of Treatment Bells for placing the bells in hospitals around the UK.”
